COMMENTS BY KAAN TERZIOGLU, CEO

We believe in Turkey, and the increased demand of our customers for 4.5G motivates us to boldly continue our investments.

We registered all-time-high first half revenue and EBITDA, both at the Turkcell Turkey and Turkcell Group level in the first half of 2016. In the second quarter, Turkcell Group achieved the highest level of growth of the past 3 years at 8.6% with a performance that improved every quarter.

In the first half of the year, Turkcell Turkey, comprising 90% of Group revenues, continued its growth at 8.9%, recording an EBITDA margin of 31.0%. Group revenues rose 8.4% to TRY6.6 billion, while EBITDA increased 5.7% to TRY2.0 billion, achieving a 30.8% EBITDA margin. Proforma Group net income 1 is at TRY1.1 billion, while net income as per IFRS is at TRY979 million. With these results, which are in line with our plans, we maintain our guidance of 8%-10% revenue growth and a 31% - 33% EBITDA margin for 2016 2.

In the first half of 2016, we focused on investing in 4.5G, which has reshaped the telecommunication market in Turkey. Given the strong interest from our customers, we have accelerated our 4.5G investments and achieved a population coverage of around 82% in 81 cities across Turkey. As of today, our 4.5G customers have reached 16 million 3, while 23% of total data traffic has derived from our 4.5G network.

We registered an operational capex to sales ratio of 23% for the first half of the year with our accelerated investment in 4.5G. We will continue to invest at full speed in the second half of the year. Accordingly, we are revising our Group operational capex to sales ratio target to 25% for 2016 from the previously announced 20% 2.

We have marked a milestone in the telecommunication sector, which also serves Turkey's broader 2023 targets. With a view to utilizing and further improving existing communication infrastructures, and for an efficient use of our resources while establishing a fair and competitive environment, we have taken significant steps towards forming an infrastructure company together with Vodafone, Turksat and TELKODER 4 members.

With these investments, we serve our part in Turkey's objective of becoming a "country that produces technology, rather than just consuming", once again declaring our belief in our country.

Turkcell Turkey: Continued growth

Turkcell continued to gain postpaid, fiber and digital service subscribers in the quarter. Postpaid customers rose by 956 thousand year-on-year to 52% of our subscriber base. Fiber subscribers rose by 148 thousand year-on-year to 965 thousand, with total fixed subscribers exceeding 1.6 million.

The notable demand for digital services has continued in this quarter. The number of customers who downloaded BiP, Turkcell TV+, Smart Storage, Goals on Your Mobile, fizy, My Account, Digital Media and Turkcell Academy applications has reached 31 million from 12.5 million a year ago. Those to have accepted our services have reached 16.7 million from 5.6 million.

In accordance with our convergence strategy, the mobile triple play ratio, which includes voice, data and service users reached 20% 5, increasing by 3 percentage points in a quarter, while multiplay with TV service users increased by 3 percentage points to 33% in the fixed segment.

Turkcell Consumer Finance Company reached approximately one million customers

Turkcell Consumer Finance Company, which commenced operations in March, has contributed to the smartphone penetration increase by providing over TRY1.2 billion loans to approximately one million customers for the financing of smartphones. Smartphone penetration on our network rose to 60% year-on-year. Also with the increase in the number of smartphones, our data revenue grew 36.2% and our service revenue grew 56.1% year-on-year.

In this quarter, interest in our payment platform, Paycell has increased, where we have launched numerous campaigns and signed collaborations with brands including Shell, Zubizu and Google. Over 11 million transactions with a value of TRY375 million passed through this platform in the first six months of this year. In the upcoming periods, more institutions will be able to offer a seamless mobile payment experience to their customers via Paycell.

We inaugurated Turkey's largest data center

In June, we inaugurated Turkey's largest data center in Gebze on a total area of 33 thousand square meters. We are determined to become one of the strongest data storage companies in our region. We plan to open new data centers in Izmir and Ankara, and with their opening, we will have a total data center area of 107 thousand square meters.

We will move forward in line with our plans

The recent events in our country have yet again demonstrated the importance of uninterrupted communication. During this challenging period, we have remained committed to providing accurate information on a timely basis by maintaining our infrastructure intact and fully operational.

We wholeheartedly believe that the future is bright, both for Turkey and our industry. We trust that the markets will remain strong, despite short-term volatility. As Turkcell, we have entered this period with previously taken precautionary measures. Having funds for investment and expansion that we believe are adequate for the next 3 years, having already taken various actions against currency risk and operating our business on the basis of disciplined financial policies at all times, we are able to perform soundly during this period. Furthermore, we so far observe no negative impact on demand for our services. Turkey's swift recovery from the terrorist attacks staged by a group of terrorists in collaboration with certain elements within the Turkish Armed Forces strongly encourages us regarding the stability of Turkey. In this context, we continue to move firmly towards our targets.

We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank our Board of Directors and the Turkcell team for their outstanding performance, dedication and compassion during this difficult period, which fully embodies the Turkcell spirit.

Revenues of the Group grew by 8.6% year-on-year in Q216.

Turkcell Turkey revenues, constituting 90% of Group revenues, rose by 8.0% to TRY3,008 million (TRY2,786 million). This was driven by 8% growth, both in consumer and corporate segment revenues to TRY2,385 million (TRY2,208 million) and to TRY540 million (TRY501 million), respectively. Our data, services and solutions revenues, comprising 46% of Turkcell Turkey revenues, have been the key growth driver, up by 39.3% to TRY1,389 million (TRY997 million).

On April 1, 2016, we began to offer 4.5G technology to our subscribers, launching a new era in Turkey's telecommunications sector. The launch of 4.5G has precipitated a shift in market dynamics in Turkey. Today's consumer consumption trend is in favor of data, while traditional voice and SMS services have a lesser impact on consumer decision making. Our investments mirror this trend. Duly, as of Q216, our revenue discussion of Turkey business focuses on data and services.

Our subscribers have enjoyed the 4.5G experience with the new high quota data packages we have launched, while we doubled the data quota of their existing packages for three months. Accordingly, in Q216 21% of our data traffic (23% as of July), which quarterly rose by 33%, was through our 4.5G network. Our 4.5G subscribers consumed 2.4 times more data per month as compared to a non 4.5G user. Coupled with higher smartphone penetration of 60% and more data users overall, data revenues rose by 36.2% to TRY1,141 million (TRY838 million), while services and solutions revenues grew by 56.1% driven mainly by increased usage of Turkcell TV+, fizy, Smart Storage and other mobile services.

Meanwhile, wholesale revenues grew by 11.2% to TRY102 million (TRY92 million) with the increase in carrier traffic.

Turkcell International revenues, comprising 6% of Group revenues, were at TRY204 million (TRY205 million) driven by currency devaluation in Ukraine and Belarus as lifecell and BeST grew by 7.1% and 25.1%, respectively in local currency terms.

Other subsidiaries' revenues, at 4% of Group revenues, which includes information and entertainment services, call center revenues and revenues from financial services rose by 43.3% to TRY146 million (TRY102 million). This was mainly driven by the contribution of revenues of our Consumer Finance Company, which commenced operations nationwide in March 2016.

Direct cost of revenues rose to 66.6% (61.4%) as a percentage of revenues in Q216, mainly due to the rise in depreciation and amortization expenses (3.6pp) reflecting the 4.5G license and investments and various other cost items mainly related with our network (1.6pp).

Administrative expenses rose to 5.2% (4.9%) as a percentage of revenues in Q216.

Selling and marketing expenses declined to 14.4% (14.8%) as a percentage of revenues in Q216, driven by the decline in selling expenses (0.8pp) with our value focused customer acquisition strategy and fall in various other cost items (0.5pp), more than offsetting the rise in marketing expenses (0.9pp) related to the 4.5G launch.

EBITDA * rose by 3.5% year-on-year in Q216 with an EBITDA margin at 30.7% (32.2%). Direct cost of revenues (excluding depreciation and amortization) increased by 1.6pp and administrative expenses rose by 0.3pp, while selling and marketing expenses declined by 0.4pp.
  • Turkcell Turkey's EBITDA grew by 0.9% to TRY923 million (TRY915 million), while the EBITDA margin was at 30.7% (32.8%).
  • Turkcell International EBITDA was at TRY53 million (TRY56 million) adversely impacted by the year-on-year devaluation in Ukraine and Belarus while the EBITDA margin was at 26.0% (27.2%).
  • The EBITDA of other subsidiaries rose by 120% to TRY53 million (TRY24 million) with the contribution of the financial services business.

(*)EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. See page 14 for the reconciliation and an explanation of how we calculate Adjusted EBITDA to net income.

Net finance income of TRY22 million (TRY397 million) was recorded in Q216. In contrast to the translation loss of TRY24 million in Q216, in Q215 a translation gain of TRY261 million was registered with positive currency movements in Ukraine. Moreover, the decline in interest income from time deposits due to a lower cash balance, the rise in interest expenses in relation to loans and 4.5G payables led to a lower net finance income in Q216. Please see Appendix A for translation gain and loss details.

Income tax expense declined 55.7% year-on-year in Q216. Please see Appendix A for details.

Net income of the Group as per IFRS declined to TRY416 million (TRY712 million) in Q216. This was mainly due to a translation loss in Q216 in contrast to a translation gain in Q215, the negative contribution of Fintur, lower interest income from time deposits due to a lower cash balance, increased interest expense on loans and 4.5G payables and a higher amortization expense due to the 4.5G license. Proforma net income 1 was at TRY542 million (TRY569 million) in Q216.

The net income of Turkcell Turkey as per IFRS declined to TRY413 million (TRY586 million) in Q216 mainly due to the reasons explained above for Group net income decline. Proforma net income 1 was at TRY513 million (TRY567 million) in Q216.

Please see Appendix A for a reconciliation of Group and Turkcell Turkey proforma net income to net income per IFRS.

Total debt as of June 30, 2016 rose to TRY7,307 million from TRY4,028 million as of March 31, 2016, as we utilized the club loan line for EUR445 million and US$500 million (c. US$1 billion).
  • Turkcell Turkey's debt balance was TRY6,499 million, of which TRY3,063 million (US$1,059 million) was denominated in US$, TRY3,061 (EUR955 million) in EUR and the remaining TRY375 million in TRY.
  • The debt balance of lifecell was TRY336 million, denominated in UAH.
  • Consumer Finance Company had a debt balance of TRY467 million denominated in TRY.

TRY4,648 million of our consolidated debt is set at a floating rate, while TRY1,098 million will mature within less than a year. (Please note that the figures in parentheses refer to US$ or EUR equivalents).

In order to hedge against approximately EUR650 million of our loan portfolio, we have engaged in participating cross currency swap transactions:
  • In June, EUR500 million China Development Bank loan with 10 years final maturity and EURIBOR +2.2% annual interest rate has been swapped to TRY denominated liability.
  • Recently in July, US$150 million of Club Loan with 4 years final maturity and LIBOR + 2.0% annual interest rate has been swapped to TRY denominated liability.
  • Foreign currency call and put options are embedded in the transactions mentioned above.

(1) We use "proforma net income" as a means of presenting our net income net of certain non-operating items and items that we believe are non-recurring. We define "proforma net income" in this document as net Income excluding FX gain / (loss) (including tax and minority impact), interest Income on time deposits of Turkcell Iletisim Hizmetleri, interest expense on loans & borrowings, share of profit of equity accounted investees (Fintur), 4.5G license amortization and one-off items. Please note that this is a non-GAAP measure and that we may in future presentations change the scope of items that we deduct from net income to arrive at "proforma net income."

Cash flow analysis: Capital expenditures, including non-operational items amounted to TRY879.6 million in Q216. The net change in debt mainly relates to an approximately US$1 billion equivalent club loan utilization. The cash flow item noted as "other" included the payment of the second installment of the 4.5G license (TRY1,323 million), advance payments for fixed asset purchases (TRY915 million) and the negative impact of the change in other working capital (TRY2 million).

Capital expenditures, including non-operational items amounted to TRY1,618.0 million in H116. The cash flow item noted as "other" includes the payment of the second installment of the 4.5G license (TRY1,323 million), advance payments for fixed asset purchases (TRY915 million), regulatory fee payments (TRY491 million) and the negative impact of the change in other working capital (TRY197 million).

In Q216 and H116, operational capital expenditures * at the Group level were at 25% and 23% of total revenues, respectively.

In Q216, we continued to focus our efforts on expanding the value generating customer base and enriching user experience through the upsell and cross-sell of our products and services.

On the mobile front, our postpaid customer base grew by 122 thousand quarterly and 956 thousand annual additions to 16.8 million, amounting to 51.6% (46.7%) of the total. Meanwhile, lower value generating customers mainly from the more price sensitive prepaid segment declined in parallel to our expectations, which led the overall mobile customer base to fall by 763 thousand to 32.6 million.

The fixed customer base has exceeded 1.6 million with 59 thousand quarterly net additions, of which 30 thousand were fiber and 29 thousand were ADSL subscribers. On an annual basis, we recorded 295 thousand fixed customers; 148 thousand were fiber and 147 thousand were ADSL customers. IPTV customers reached 303 thousand on 35 thousand quarterly net additions. Annually IPTV customers increased by 164 thousand. In total, mobile TV has been downloaded by 1.8 million users to date.

Mobile churn remained at 8.0% (8.0%) year-on-year, while fixed churn was slightly higher at 5.1% (4.2%).

Mobile blended ARPU rose by 7.1% with our upsell strategy, focus on high value customer groups, as well as increased package penetration. Triple play ratio, which includes voice, data and services users, reached 20% 1 and contributed to the ARPU uplift. Meanwhile, consumer segment ARPU rose by 11% reflecting our value focused customer acquisitions and inflationary pricing strategy.

Fixed ARPU rose 7.1% on increased multiplay customers with TV 2 to 33% of total residential fiber customers in addition to implementation of inflationary pricing strategy.

Mobile MoU rose by 7.1% driven by our increased postpaid base and upsell efforts.

Smartphone penetration on our network reached 60% with 904 thousand quarterly net additions. Accordingly, there were 17.5 million smartphones on our network at quarter end, with 46% being 4.5G enabled.

(*) Since July 10, 2015, we hold a 100% stake in lifecell.

lifecell revenues grew by 7.1% in local currency terms, almost doubling mobile broadband revenues on the back of 3G+ services. As a new revenue line, lifecell has started to offer its subscribers a portfolio of terminals that includes data packages. lifecell's EBITDA fell 6.2% in local currency terms with an EBITDA margin of 26.4% (30.2%), due to higher network related costs of the 3G+ roll-out and operational leasing expense post the tower related sale and leaseback transaction in April 2016, and higher marketing expenses driven by rebranding activities.

Although UAH appreciated during the quarter, devaluation on a year-on-year basis led to a 1.9% year-on-year decline in lifecell's revenues in TRY terms, while EBITDA declined by 14.4%.

lifecell has continued its 3G+ network roll-out, leading the market by the number of districts covered. By providing the fastest 3G speed of 63.3 Mbps in Ukraine with 3-carrier technology, lifecell subscribers' 3G+ adoption has continued, reaching 2.7 million (three-month active). Further, with 52% smartphone penetration, data usage per subscriber has more than doubled post introduction of 3G+.

In Q216, lifecell's three-month active subscriber base declined to 9.7 million on 678 thousand quarterly net losses. This was mainly due to decreasing multiple SIM card usage.

Blended ARPU (3-month active) rose by 10.7% driven by increased mobile broadband usage. MoU (12-month active) fell by 9.1% due to changing consumer behavior.

All figures presented in this document for prior periods have been restated to reflect this change.(*)BeST, in which we hold an 80% stake, has operated in Belarus since July 2008.

BeST registered solid year-on-year revenue growth of 25.1% in Q216 in local currency terms mainly with increased voice revenues and terminal revenues on the back of higher smartphone sales. The EBITDA margin improved by 1.0pp to 3.2% (2.2%), mainly driven by top-line growth and better operational expense management.

In TRY terms, performance remained impacted by yearly local currency devaluation. Revenues rose by 2.1% to TRY35 million (TRY34 million), while EBITDA improved to TRY1.1 million (TRY0.8 million).

KKTCELL's revenues grew by 2.7% year-on-year reflecting strong mobile broadband growth driven by higher data demand. EBITDA declined 1.5% leading to an EBITDA margin of 38.0% (39.8%). This was mainly due to regulatory amendment regarding the termination rates and additional frequency fees.

Fintur's consolidated revenues declined by 43.4% in Q216. Ongoing competitive pressure in Kazakhstan led to decreased Kcell revenues. Year-on-year currency devaluation also impacted Kcell and Azercell revenues negatively. Fintur subscribers declined by 100 thousand during Q216 to 16.7 million mainly due to Kcell subscriber decline. Fintur had a negative contribution of US$3 million (US$35 million positive contribution) to Group net income in Q216. This was mainly due to the year-on-year devaluation impact on reported figures, revenue pressure in Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan and higher operational tax costs in the region.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASUREMENTS: We believe Adjusted EBITDA, among other measures, facilitates performance comparisons from period to period and management decision making. It also facilitates performance comparisons from company to company. Adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure eliminates potential differences caused by variations in capital structures (affecting interest expense), tax positions (such as the impact of changes in effective tax rates on periods or companies) and the age and book depreciation of tangible assets (affecting relative depreciation expense). We also present Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in evaluating the performance of other mobile operators in the telecommunications industry in Europe, many of which present Adjusted EBITDA when reporting their results.

Our Adjusted EBITDA definition includes Revenue, Direct Cost of Revenue excluding depreciation and amortization, Selling and Marketing expenses and Administrative expenses, but excludes translation gain/(loss), finance income, share of profit of equity accounted investees, gain on sale of investments, income/(loss) from related parties, minority interest and other income/(expense).

Nevertheless, Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation from, or as a substitute for analysis of, our results of operations, as reported under IFRS. The following table provides a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, as calculated using financial data prepared in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB, to net profit, which we believe is the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB.
